Running a retirement home can feel like juggling a thousand things at once. From hiring caterers to modifying rooms for medical needs, there’s an endless list of tasks to manage in order to protect the well-being of your residents.
One aspect you can’t overlook is your home’s energy supply. It’s not a low-cost one, either – the expenses of powering lights and fixtures can quickly add up, leaving you with a tight budget for other necessities.
Thankfully, we’ve got the perfect solution: solar panels! Not only will they shave a large chunk off your energy bills, but they’ll also make your retirement home more eco-friendly and provide added security during blackouts (when combined with solar battery storage). By embracing solar power, you can save money, and contribute to a greener future!

The benefits of solar panels for retirement homes
By installing a solar PV system, you unlock a world of benefits for your retirement or care home:
Care homes typically have high energy consumption due to heating, cooling, lighting, and medical equipment. Solar panels can significantly reduce or eliminate the reliance on traditional grid power, leading to substantial cost savings on electricity bills. This can free up financial resources that can be redirected towards improving the quality of care provided to residents.
By generating their own electricity, care homes become less dependent on the grid, ensuring a more reliable and stable energy supply. This is particularly important during power outages or emergencies when uninterrupted power is crucial for the well-being and safety of residents, especially those with medical conditions that require continuous care. When you combine solar panels with a solar battery system, you can even benefit from solar power when the sun isn’t shining!
Reduce your carbon footprint
According to the ONS Environmental Accounts, residential properties – including retirement homes – are the biggest emitters of greenhouse gases in the UK. By choosing to incorporate solar panels into your retirement home, you’re not only making a positive impact on the environment; you’re playing your part in safeguarding our planet for generations to come.
It’s not just the environment that benefits, either. Residents and their families who value green initiatives will be thrilled to know that your home prioritises sustainability, and it may influence their decision to choose your home over others in the area.
Earn money year on year
With the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG), you now have the chance to sell any excess electricity produced by your solar system back to the grid. Not only does this boost your care home’s budget, but it also plays a vital role in reducing the UK’s dependency on fossil fuels.

Benefit from FREE solar panel installation with a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)
A Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) offers a convenient and straightforward solution for your retirement or care home to harness solar energy without the need for any initial investment on your part.
Rather than dealing with the complexities of purchasing and managing solar panels yourself, our team will handle all aspects for you. We’ll take care of the installation, ownership, and operation of the solar system on your property, allowing you to relax and enjoy the advantages.
Under the PPA arrangement, you agree to purchase the electricity generated by the system at a discounted rate for a specified period, typically ranging from 10 to 25 years.
This way, your retirement home can expect to save an average of 30% on its average energy bills. This approach offers a stress-free and financially viable path to going solar, eliminating the burden of upfront costs and ongoing maintenance responsibilities.
If you’re interested in exploring your solar panel installation options further and learning how a PPA can benefit your retirement home, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our friendly team today at 0330 124 2941. We’re here to assist you!
